This post contains affiliate links, which means I will make a commission at no extra cost to you should you click through and make a purchase. I was also compensated to create this post, though all opinions are my own.
What is Tailwind Smart.bio?
Tailwind Smart.bio is a linking tool designed to make easy to schedule Instagram posts with the dedicated link for that post.
As you know in Instagram it is possible to place a link only in the profile section. ( I have already the Tailwind Smart.bio link on my profile page, pretend this is the previous link, which was the website homepage}
This is my Instagram account linked to a Shopify store. Once I place the link to the website I am done, any link placed in the post captions is not clickable.
This means that each visitor interested in the post has to navigate to the profile, click the link to the website homepage and then search for the product they were looking for.
This is how the profile page looks like:
You can see the link allowed is shown at the end.
In my case, the visitor has to find the item amongst hundreds of similar products once arrived to the website.
You can for sure see how it is very likely to lose visitors on the way.
With the Tailwind Smart.bio I can link each post to a page and I can set up which post to display once the visitor clicks on the Tailwind Smart.bio in the Instagram profile.
The visitor can easily find the latest posts and go to the dedicated webpage for that post with one click.
Tailwind Smart.bio is a way to easily put links to your blog posts and showcase your favorite Instagram content all in one place.
Here is how mine currently looks:
Those are the latest post, which means each visitor can click on the “Learn More” button and be directed to the webpage for that post. For this example let’s click on the first post:
There we go! The visitor can go to the webpage and decide to make a purchase or not. No click and browsing and searching.
How Tailwind Smart.bio works?
Tailwind Smart.bio is very easy to use.
When you are scheduling the post you can simply add the Smart.bio link:
When Tailwind publishes your post, the link is going live.
If you have already posted into your Instagram account and want to add Tailwind Smart.bio, go to your Tailwind account:
Click on Smart.bio:
Here you can load the past posts and add Smart.bio to each post.
The greatest thing is that you can also customize special button links at the top of the page each visitor is going to see once clicking on Smart.bio.
I give you an example. This is what each visitor sees now:
I am going to add a new Button Link at the top of this page.
Always in the Tailwind dashboard, I click on the Smart.bio menu:
Once there I click on ” Add New Button Links “:
Once this is done I can add the Button I need by deciding on a label and placing the link.
Let’s add a discount code button:
Then save and there it is:
Now every person who is clicking on the Smart.bio in the Instagram profile will see the above page, with so much discount code button and the latest posts with their links!!!!
Not only it is a free tool, coming with your Tailwind for Instagram ( which also comes with a free Trial) but there is also analytics connected to this tool showing you the results:
How Tailwind Smart.bio is Changing my Presence on Instagram
I was looking for a long time a way to link a post with a specific page on Instagram. Let’s face it, people will not click and browse to look at a product unless it is made easy for them to find what they want.
For a long time, I did not use Instagram because of the time needed to post and because I thought it was too much effort to post an image that I knew could not be related to the dedicated website page.
Until now I have not created an Instagram account for my blog because of this.
First with the Tailwind scheduling for Instagram ( and Facebook at the same time), and then with Tailwind Smart.bio, I started again to use Instagram as it is very easy and fast to post.
The result has been to start getting traffic from Instagram to my site:
All in all working with this tool become easy and also fun.
These are my personal results, but Tailwind also publishes the Typical Results of Tailwind Members every year, so you can see exactly what the average growth rate looks like for their members.
